  1. Quite interesting! We had only the -05 Monprivato (of the Monprivatos), and to my palate this wine was far more inviting than the 2006 Villero. Now you dont comment on drinkabillity for the different vintages, but as the 05 has more primary fruit I assume that this is due to the vintage. I found however both wines very structured and layered, and not at least pleasant!
